Will the amount of child support be the same for an 18 year-old who chooses not to go to college or work?

Q: I am getting divorced in New York. My 18 year-old son is out of high school (got GED) and does not want to go to college or get a job. Basically, he sleeps during the day and hangs out at night. He said he wants to live with his father after the divorce. I know this is because he will not have to change his lifestyle living with his father, and knows I would require him to get a job or help around the house to contribute. Although I agree with NY law in supporting your children until age 21, I think the child support should be less than it is when the child is attending school and unable to work. I realize the bigger issue is my son's lack of motivation to move forward. But at the moment, I am asking about the support.

Can I claim child support if my husband has a job but isn't getting paid using his social security?

Q: My husband is the breadwinner and makes a lot of money. He has 3 duis and is claiming because he is the bread winner he can take the kids from me. My question is, can I get my kids if I can't provide shelter as of yet and can I get child support from him although he doesn't file a tax return and is not working using his social security.

Who do I contact?

Q: I took my ex husband to child support court last January. He never showed up and he was working off the books. The judge specified a very small amount he's obligated to pay weekly since they didn't have any documentation to show what his income is. I recently found out he started working on the books last April. He owes back child support. Do I need to contact the child support unit to notify them that's he now legally employed? It's been 7 months already.

Seeking to retain counsel for child support case in Westchester County Family Court.

Q: Ordered to pay $1,200.00/mn (bi-weekly payments of $600.00 to DSS) for child support in May of 2018. Custodial parent no longer receives public assistance and is requesting $800/wk, a $10,000.00 deposit for child's college fund, and payments upto the age of 26 years old. I am willing to pay additional for childcare expenses, but only if custodial parent agrees to seek employment as she is refusing to work. I also provide medical benefits to child through my employer. Trying to be fair, not abused. Thank you! 

How can I have my child support stopped if my daughter moved out to live with her boyfriend & his mother?

Q: After years of seeing her mother use control over her & I that also affected my visitations. I haven't seen my daughter in 6 yrs & my daughter and mother were fighting and she moved out 2 months ago. She still attends H.S. with a 3.7 GPA and turns 18 in Jan & graduates june 2019. She want the child support paid directly to her and I'm more than willing if I can get it terminated and pay until age 21. So far my ex-wife haven't even told me that our daughter moved out and I see why because she wants to keep collecting the child support $607 bi-weekly.

What if I been to court already for child support then I lose my job and go on public assistance?

Q: I just recently had a court date for child support, when I got there I the custodial mother had no lawyer the father did the judge did not want to hear from me cause I had no lawyer I told her I could not afford a lawyer and ask for a public defender she told me she could not give me one then she rescheduled to another date in November I mentioned I still can not afford a lawyer she said that is my problem. She told the father in the mean time to pay me only $125 week, I mentioned to her I've been paying his childcare for 2 months with no help from his father and wanted back payments she said he don't have to pay me anything I felt the judge did not want to hear from me cause I had no lawyer. She took the activated from the father and not myself the father lives with his parents he lied and said he pays rent so he won't have to give me money in child support his parents are helping him hide money what can I do I need help this is in Westchester county Yonkers

Is the custodial parent obligated to give an account dollar for dollar of what the child support is spent on?

Q: My soon to be ex husband- pays child support and we have a mutual agreement. things have gotten ugly between us and he now wants me to give him receipts of what i spend the child support money on. I am insulted that he would even ask. i have nothing to hide but i don't want to now save receipts and provide them.

What happens if the non-custodial parent claims they lost their job during a child support modification case?

Q: We have been back and forth to family court because he claims he does not have a W-2 and only provided 2 paystubs. This last time we were in court, he claimed his pay stub was wrong and that he will like to provide a letter from his HR. Coincidentally, last week, he claimed he lost his job and possibly on purpose. Can I still get an increase in child support since he has made more since the last time we were in court since 2009? Also, how can I prove he got himself fired to avoid the increase?
